It’s hard to believe that the attack on the World Trade Center was 19 years ago today. For those of us who lived it, it’s hard to think that people under 25 have little or no recollection that young extremist Arab Muslims, followers of Osama Bin Laden, with minimal flight instruction, box cutters, and little else commandeered American passenger airliners full of innocent people and tet fuel, and flew them into the twin towers of the World Trade Center.

First reports said a small plane must have accidently hit the building, but the gaping hole caused by the crash and watching the second plane come in; accidental was quickly ruled out.
